Succulent ID'd by John J as Aeonium arborescens purpureum
« on: March 03, 2018, 03:55:32 PM »
Hi
I am new to the forum but was hoping that someone may be able to identify the plant in the attached photo. It is a succulent and has been grown from a piece that broke off an unknown plant my sister had that susequently died. We have had it for 2-3 years and the middle stem appeared about 3 months ago, followed by the buds and subsequent flowers in the last couple of weeks.
We are based in Southern Italy.
Any help greatly appreciated.
Regards
Andy
